    You mean in addition to the tax cut he provided for 95% of working families???
    PolitiFact | Tax cut for 95 percent? The stimulus made it so

    Its not like he hasn't been trying to do more, and been blocked at every turn by the GOP.

    wrong as usual

    those who are in that category are normally paying an effective federal income tax rate of around 17%

    do you know what level of earned income you have to have to pay an effective federal income tax rate higher than 17%?

    No, he hasn't tried. Buffett tried to help him out here and he's still not made any attempt.

    Not that there is anything wrong with making some pay more in taxes than others.

    why? if they both get the same value why is it right? I reject that its proper-it might be necessary but not proper

    you don't seem to understand the dangers of allowing the majority to put all the burden of paying for government on the shoulders of a minority

    well hey lookit that; Politifact isn't capable of understanding the difference between a tax rate cut and a tax credit.

    You are dishonestly excluding the federal income through FICA taxes, and gasoline taxes, of which wage earners pay a higher percentage of their income on than the rich that derive most of their income from investments.
